Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Transiting Uranus harmonizes with your Sun this year until March 2017. Your personality is sparkling during this period, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your life. Exciting (not jarring) changes and new interests characterize the period. It’s easier than ever to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations this year. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You are able to find especially creative solutions to problems.
However, this year, Saturn also harmonizes with your Sun, starting in January 2017, and this helps you to bring a balance of tradition and progress into your life. Saturn’s transit suggests benefits from keeping your feet on the ground and paying attention to, and honoring, tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off now – not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. When you project a more responsible and credible “you”, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a time in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. The key to success under this influence is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life. Having a strong sense for both tradition and innovation opens doors for you. You have a real sense of tomorrow now, so it’s easier for you to take the necessary steps to make all of your “tomorrows” better.
As well, Jupiter moves into transiting harmony with your Sun from January 2017 forward. Things are really coming together for you! You have a stronger than usual desire to improve, grow, and learn. This is a fortunate aspect that helps boost optimism and confidence, and you can attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests can be especially favorable. It’s a good time to further your education. You are likely to enjoy a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses.
With Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus supporting your Sun, this is an excellent period for business and lifestyle balance.
Your ability to express yourself and to solve problems is enhanced. You may have opportunities to travel this year, and matters related to publishing, teaching, and writing should go especially well. You may find that you have the right information at the right time this year. You could also have big ideas and plans. Work, especially in communications, goes well. You are able to visualize in broader terms and see the “big picture” now. Your optimism can help you to attract positive circumstances into your life. You are especially enthusiastic about your ideas, and expressing yourself comes easily. Public relations and negotiations tend to run especially smoothly. This is a time for making long-range plans, seeing the big picture, and thinking about what is really important to you in the long run.
There can be significant involvement in publishing, television, or other areas where sharing ideas with large groups is a theme.
Your powers of investigation are strong – you go to the origin of a problem and work from there. There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. You are especially resourceful when your curiosity is piqued.
With Mars conjunct Saturn in your Solar Return chart, you are more determined and hard-working than usual. This is an excellent time to get organized and to stick with projects through to the end. When you face obstacles to your goals, which is a likely scenario this year, you are likely to just keep on pushing. Progress may be slow, but it’s steady and solid. What you accomplish now will benefit you for years to come.
There can be some wrestling with expectations or logistics in relationships this year. Feelings can sometimes run hot and cold in love. Venus in challenging aspect to Neptune and Saturn can affect finances or romantic relationships, and possibly both areas. Uncertainty in either of these areas is the theme, but this does not necessarily point to financial or romantic losses, by all means. It might point to, for example, a variable income that goes with the territory of self-employment, or a relationship that isn’t quite as settled as you’d like it to be for the time being. Saturn asks you to be responsible, hard working, dutiful, and serious when it comes to finances and/or romantic relationships. Neptune, on the other hand, places a veil over your eyes and seduces you into believing what you want to believe rather than what really is. You need to assess areas of your life that have become dysfunctional and, in the process, you may need to sacrifice a material benefit for a spiritual one (or vice versa). You are learning to put your priorities into better perspective. Venus is also moving towards a conjunction with the Moon’s North Node, suggesting that you are likely to attract growth-oriented relationships into your life. Your powers of negotiation are very strong, and this aspect points to some form of resolution to the matters mentioned above.
You may win respect and recognition for your work or craft this year. There is a good balance between learning from tradition and seeing things progressively.
You are better able to come to a good balance in attitude this year, and many life departments can benefit, although some relationships can be up and down and extra attention should be paid to financial matters. You’re in an exceptionally strong position for taking advantage of new opportunities while keeping your feet on the ground. There can be recognition for your work or talents.
